Its been truly a great opportunity to work on youth development and GYAN as an organization that provides has been one of the strong organizations that i happen to have been affiliated to through an NGO (Young People We Care ) I established in Ghana. As at the time i started i found the MDG Youth Action Guide very resourceful in my mobilizations and campaigns for youth engagement in the MDGs. Later on other resources were used to promote youth voices at key events such as the GFMD with thanks to the online platform of GYAN and TIG. GYAN serves as a great youth platform that enhances youth cooperation for effective advocacy and results.

GYAN serves as a platform that unites and communicates young people around the world to act upon the most critical problems of our generations, such as Climate Change and Sustainable Development in general. By being actively participating in both, COP and CSD international meetings, the network makes sure that the voices of youth is represented at the highest levels.
